In the toolbar (T) you now have a grease pencil tab. The stroke placement is in that tab.

Add a new Grease Pencil datablock in a properies window (N). In Tool Shelf (T) change the stroke placement to Surface. Hold D and then press and hold the LMB button to draw. Disable the X Ray option if you don't want to see the strokes through the object. To erase, hold D button and then press and hold the RMB. enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Maybe useful: D, if I understand correctly, is a shortcut to activate the actual Draw/Erase grease pencil functions. D+LMB is equivalent to pressing Draw in the toolshelf and use mouse to draw, while D+RMB is equivalent to pressing Erase to erase with mouse. Similarly, Ctrl-D activates Line and Poly. The four buttons are grayed while the shortcuts are active as visible on the animation above. More on this here. $\endgroup$ – mins Sep 8 '18 at 9:23
